Finebaum is back, this time on ESPN Radio

Paul Finebaum returns to the air today, this time as part of ESPN’s ever-growing kingdom.

Love him.

Hate him.

Ignore him.

Or just don’t care what he talks about, you can’t deny Finebaum’s popularity and power in the SEC.

He’s been known as the “The Voice of the SEC,” for a while, a title that ESPN has been using to promote his move.

Finebaum, who has made a career of stoking the Alabama-Auburn feud on a year-round basis, has been off the air for six months after his deal with a Birmingham radio station ended, leaving his diehard listeners in a lurch.

I’ve already been informed by a member of my wife’s family – which, like so many families there, has both Auburn and Alabama factions – that Finebaum’s new show will back on the air this afternoon in her part of the state.

She can’t wait.

Like many folks there, Finebaum is as big a part of their lives as breathing.

The new show will differ from than his previous one. It’ll be broadcast from Charlotte, N.C., not Birmingham, and it will have ESPN’s resources behind it.

It’ll be interesting to see if his former regulars will continue to call and if all things Alabama and Auburn dominate the conversation.

Let us know what you think.

Do you like Finebaum? Are you ready for his show to return? Is he overrated?

Did Finebaum have surgery? Who removed Paul’s nose from little Nicky’s ass?

Cecil Hurt on Finebaum: “It’s been so long, the last time we talked Manti Te’o’s girlfriend was still real.”

Sorry, but anyone broadcasting from Charlotte, North Carolina cannot be the “Voice of the SEC”.
